I started using Bulbapedia in 2008 while playing Pearl version but only joined the forum on 1 January 2011 and I started contributing to Bulbapedia, Bulbagarden Archives and Bulbanews on 7 May 2011. I became a Writer for Bulbanews on 14 December 2011, I was promoted to a Senior Writer on 3 August 2014 and then I was promoted to become a member of Bulbanews's Board of Editors on 9 November 2017.
I started playing Pokémon with Red version in 1999 and have one game of each pair of games and most of the third versions. The versions which I have are Red, Blue, Silver, Crystal, Sapphire, Leaf Green, Emerald, Pearl, Platinum, Soul Silver and from Black and White onwards I started to get both versions at launch date. There are more side games which I have listed in the box of user tags. My favourite types of pokémon are Water, Grass and Electric. I also watch the anime, play the TCG and read the Pokémon Adventures/Special manga.
